Part-Timers Petition for a Fair Contract

July 6, 2012: Part-timers and other inside workers are organizing to win a contract that delivers for all Teamsters—full-time and part-time.

They've launched a petition drive to demand better pay and more full-time jobs.

"In Milwaukee, we're collecting signatures at shift change from part-timers and drivers too," said Daniel Ginsberg-Jaeckle, a Local 344 Teamster. "We want management and our bargaining committee to see that full-timers and part-timers are uniting behind each other's bargaining demands."

Any contract offer from UPS has to be put to a vote of the members. If UPS sees that part-timers and inside workers will vote to reject a weak contract, they will be forced to put a better offer on the table.

Higher Pay for Part-Timers

"Starting pay for part-timers is just $8.50 an hour. That's below minimum wage in some areas. It's ridiculous.

"National negotiations are our chance to win higher starting pay and more guaranteed hours.

"Part-timers aren't going to make what the drivers do. But there should be a progression to a top rate. That's what a real union pay scale looks like—and the national contract is the place to win it."

Local 804, New York
